40 Days of Now: Day 8

(This post is part of a series. If you'd like to know what it's all about, go here.)

Now. Jesus, I see You today in the practical love of a friend, taking the kids for the day so I could rest. I think seeing You in people is my favorite, because that's what You want--for us to be living expressions of Your love. Your love is so extravagant, but it is also practical. You washed dirty feet, You fed hungry people, You befriended the outcasts, and You healed the sick. Oh, how I love this part of Your character! And I am so blessed to have friends and family who display this kind of love often. Thank You for loving me through her today. ~R

When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them. "You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.
(John 13:12-17)

  1. Jesus, I saw you today in a houseful of children. Each one different; each fearfully and wonderfully made. Each one valued and sent into this world by their Creator. I see Jesus giving me a commission of sorts--a different opportunity in each one of their lives. They are not mine---even my children are not mine. They are God's and he gives me a part.
